Whyte Bikes 2023 E-160 S MX E-MTB


Size Chart


The S-model e-160 has all the right elements to take your rides to the next level.

Our unique lowered centre of gravity concept delivers class leading handling and agility. And thanks to a huge 750Wh battery and high power 85Nm Bosch Performance Line CX motor, you’re geared up for maximum enjoyment on the trails. 
Our brand-new frameset adds a single-bolt release downtube protection system and tool-free battery removal to our legendary, multi award winning low centre of gravity and Total Geometry handling. That gives it incredible agility and accuracy for dominating the rowdiest trails in twin 29er format or choose the 27.5in rear wheel MX version if you’re a shredder who really want to get loose. XS and S sizes come with 27.5in wheels both ends for balanced handling and all bikes get top spec Maxxis tyres, oversized RockShox Zeb forks and 220mm front brake rotors for maximum confidence.  
Because at Whyte we don’t cut corners, we just hit them as hard as possible.
High Power – Low Centre of Gravity
The new 85Nm Performance Line CX drive unit and Bosch’s largest capacity 750Wh battery are positioned to give an ultra-low centre of gravity, delivering responsive and intuitive power with the most agile handling imaginable.

Our Senior Design Engineer Sam Shucksmith, the current and two-time British Enduro Series Champion is dedicated to researching and developing the ultimate suspension tune.
